Event -- Michigan Medical Education Day

What is it?
Michigan Medical Education Day (MMED) began in 2011 through the collaborative work of all of Michigan’s Medical schools and Pre-Health advisors.  It is funded by generous donations from all seven medical schools in
Michigan! This IN-Person event is held every other year. (there is no virtual option this meeting)

MMED 2023 will provide pre-medical students from across the state of Michigan with programs designed to help them explore medicine as a career path and make a well-prepared decision to apply to medical school.  Students will get the chance to hear directly from medical school admissions representatives and Pre-Health advisors about preparing well, as they discuss topics ranging from activities, to interviews, to admission criteria.

When is it?
Date: Saturday October 7
Location: MSU East Lansing
Sessions: 9:30am – 4:00pm

Who can attend?

This program is designed for current (2023-24) college students who do not have an active medical school application. Michigan residents and/or those attending college in the state of Michigan are particularly encouraged to attend. Those who have already submitted or are in the process of submitting an AMCAS or AACOMAS application for the current application cycle are not eligible to attend this event.
